Electricity prices are rising. This is down as much to the important grid expansion necessary for the energy revolution as to the wildly fluctuating prices for fossil fuels. Now you can protect your business against electricity price increases over the long term by investing in your own photovoltaic system. With a photovoltaic system you generate your own energy at a fixed price and therefore have to buy as little electricity as possible from the public grid.
Photovoltaics pays off for business owners
Andrew Foster, Financial Director at Alan Bartlett and Sons“The installation of the PV system is an important investment for our company. It allows us to save on material costs whilst simultaneously reducing our ecological footprint.”
Save with your own electricity
The basic principle is simple: you only use as much electricity as you actually need. The rest finds its way into the public grid, and depending on the country, you receive a feed-in tariff for it – in Germany, for example, this is in accordance with the “Renewable Energy Act” (EEG). A photovoltaic system can produce electricity steadily for more than 20 years, but for this to happen, it is crucial to have high-quality solar components. We thoroughly test all our inverters and make sure that they also work reliably under the toughest conditions. Our warranty models for the inverters extend over a period of up to 20 years, giving you the certainty you require.
Make optimum use of your solar energy
Generally speaking, the higher the base load rate – that is, the steady energy demand distributed over the day or the week – the more self-generated solar energy you use in your own business. To maintain maximum efficiency, the power consumption, load profile (distribution over time) and the capacity of the photovoltaic system must be well matched. After all, a supermarket that is open seven days a week and runs a deep-freeze warehouse has a different load profile to an office building. Your specialist solar installer will make these calculations for you and give you expert advice when planning the system that is right for you.
